Then 0 to meet my lassie yet,

Heaven oft hears me name thy name
Up in the glen sae grassy yet,

In my secret prayer,
For all I see

When thou pour'st thy orisons,
Are nought to me,

Do I mingle there?
Save her that's but a lassie yet!

Do I live within thy heart,

Love! as thou in mine?
TO TWO SISTERS.

Even of my life thou art a part,

Love! am I of thine ?
By Lawrence Macdonald.

Dreams, thoughts, and prayers, whate'er my fate Young Peris of the North ! 'tis bliss to be

In this dark world, are thine ;
Within the influence of these gladdening eyes !

My heavenly home is far away,
More lovely than the loveliest stars to me,

Thou art my earthly shrine !

GERTRUDE. And fair as is the light of Eastern skies-When darkness leaves the world, and daybreak lies

Like cradled slumber on wide ocean's face !
When morning hymns, address'd to Heaven, arise

SONNET.
With rising day, that now begins his race
On fair Aurora's steeds, all matchless in their pace.

Think not, though never from my lips flow'd free

The assurance of affection tried and true, Ye are the loveliest of the virgin train,

That time could blot the past from Memory's view, That lead the mazy dance, that tread the green ;

Or change one feeling of my soul to thee!
Many's the heart those eyes of yours have slain,

Oft, when I long to tell thee all my heart,
Yet all unconscious of their power ye seem !

My tongue seems chain'd by some enchantment deep, There's not a spot on earth where I have been,

And when thou’rt gone, I ponder and I weep,
Can boast of beauties that more purely shine !

To think I could not say how dear thou art !
Ev'n that famed Paradise of old, I ween,

The shallow rills rush down the mountain side, Held nought, in shape of woman, more divine :

And prattle idly to the dancing flowers, ''Tis well for me, the world bath steel'd this breast of mine! |

While calm-unseen-amid the greenwood bowers

The deeper streams in noiseless current glide.
And loveliness like this, 'neath northern skies,
Such matchless grace, in forms so passing fair,-

Oh! souls that feel the most, can least express
Brings more delight into the wondering eyes

Their golden weight of silent tenderness!

GERTRUDE. Than found in climes where the unchilling air Ruffles not nature, nor her children there,

Freezes not life, that fills the living vein,
Nor presses on the brow that wears no care,

TO MY SISTER ELLEN.
But makes more pure the blood that flows again
Back to the heart, as streams and rivers seek the main.

Return, sweet sister Ellen ! come
Thy imaged likeness in my soul I'll bear

Where loving looks will greet thee, Where lead my steps; and if, in after time,

And kind hearts smile thy welcome home,
The fame of sculptured groups should meet thine ear,

And open arms will meet thee !
Whose pliant arms around each other twine,
Link'd in undying love ! this group divine

Beloved one, we have mourn'd thee long,
Will be the Fairy Sisters of my lay ;

And, 'mid our tears and sadness,
And should they cast one thought on me or mine,

Oft call to mind thy trancing song, 'Twill tend to lengthen out my waning day,

And guileless looks of gladness. And lend a brighter gleam to life's last struggling ray.

And, when the evening shadows fall, Edinburgh, March 2, 1830.

We want thy blue eye's brightness;

And sigh to miss, witbin the hall,
TO VIVIAN.

Thy small foot's fairy lightness.
Do I haunt thy nightly dreams,

We've wreathed thy lattice round with flowers,
Love! as thou dost mine-

And deck'd thy fav'rite chamber,
When the stars o'er slumbering worlds

And made the spoils of greenwood bowers
Pure and gentle shine ?

Around its casement clamber.
In the fairy land of sleep
Aye thy form I see;

We've watch'd for thee from morn till eve,
Ah ! does mine e'er gild thy rest?

In silence and in sorrow,
Dream'st thou e'er of me?

And when night came to undeceive,

We said, “ She'll come to-morrow."
Do I haunt thy waking thoughts,
Love! as thou dost mine

And wilt thou not come, sister dear,
'Mid the light and joy of morn,

Among our woods to wander-
Or eve's hush divine ?

The music of our streams to hear,
With the song of birds and streams

And trace their wild meander?
Back thou com'st to me,
Do I e'er mingle with the past

Oh, come, my own beloved one, come !
In bright memory?

Here loving looks will greet thee,

And kind hearts smile thy welcome home,
Do I haunt thy holy hours,

And open arms will meet thee. W. W.
Love! as thou dost mine
Blending still with sacred thoughts

That sadden, but refine?
